With Vedic maths having quicker ways to implement arithmetic calculations , It could increase the efficiency behind multiplicaiton and division algorithms.

MATLAB does not represent numbers in decimal. Instead it relies on hardware calculations. The steps of analysis to break into decimal and decide on the appropriate sutra and perform the calculations and convert back to binary, would greatly exceed the hardware binary calculations.

"Why MATLAB does not support TAMIL language"
Because of low market value. There are not enough Tamil speaking users to make it cost effective to translate all of the messages and all of the documentation. The only markets that are currently large enough to support are English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. There is not even a German version, but the German market is much larger than the Tamil market.
Mathworks is generally a decent company, but if they invest in a Tamil interface they will never recapture the cost, and that means that they would have to do less on improving the product for everyone.
